This is no joke...
“White House officials working on trade policy were alarmed last month when a top adviser to President Trump circulated a two-page document that alleged a weakened manufacturing sector leads to an increase in abortion, spousal abuse, divorce and infertility, two people familiar with the matter said.
The documents, which were obtained by The Washington Post, were prepared and distributed by Peter Navarro, director of the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy. They were presented without any data or information to back up the assertions, and reveal some of the materials the Trump administration reviewed as it was crafting its trade policy.” As reported by the Washington Post.
There is one thing particularly disturbing about this report. The statements regarding the decline in manufacturing being linked to abortions, infertility and spouse abuse was not backed up with any data or information. The documents appear to be a set of alternative facts without factual or scientific support, showing America a level of incompetence that may be unmatched by any modern day presidential administration.
